Publisher's Summary

Outspoken critic Jessa Crispin delivers a searing rejection of contemporary feminism...and a bracing manifesto for revolution.

Are you a feminist? Do you believe women are human beings and that they deserve to be treated as such? That women deserve all the same rights and liberties bestowed upon men? If so, then you are a feminist...or so the feminists keep insisting. But somewhere along the way, the movement for female liberation sacrificed meaning for acceptance, and left us with a banal, polite, ineffectual pose that barely challenges the status quo. In this bracing, fiercely intelligent manifesto, Jessa Crispin demands more.

Why I Am Not a Feminist is a radical, fearless call for revolution. It accuses the feminist movement of obliviousness, irrelevance, and cowardice - and demands nothing less than the total dismantling of a system of oppression.

    "All Men Should Read This"

    As a man, it was always really hard for me to understand why women might be disadvantaged. This book helped me see a lot of obvious stuff that was hiding in plain sight. I guess you don't see stuff if you don't want to.

    Story
    "Disappointed I wasted a credit"

    I was hoping for something a bit more enlightened than the same old poor me drivel about how the world is ruled by men (got me with the title). The author is interested in equality of outcome not equality of opportunity. The woman's movement was for equal opportunity - which exists today, so the movement now has to move to equality of outcome to remain relevant. But equal opportunity (best person for job) and equal outcome (person for job must be a woman) are completely different equations.
    Hopefully this is the worst book I listen to - would hate to spend any money or time on anything worse.
